Now that VidCon is over, I wanted to do my own little “PSA” about the only downside of the event: the obsessive fan mobbing. There’s no reason for it. It doesn’t increase your own enjoyment of the event, and it can downright terrify your favorite YouTubers. But with a little work from all of us as a community, we can understand it and prevent it.
This is a really important video so give it a watch!
I wouldn’t say this was the only thing at vidcon that “was not ideal,” but basically watch this entire video immediately because it’s important.
Yeah, this particular thing was intense. Particularly after three straight days of high-pitched screaming.
What is most shocking to me is that vidcon doesn’t seem to have a policy in place to immediately revoke passes from people who mob and CHASE and even PUNCH security guards in an attempt to get closer to a special guest.
